Giveaway: New Ability Office Standard v8 License Key [Microsoft Office Alternative]



Productivity suites are not in great numbers compared to other tools available for Windows computers. For example, tools for hard disk problem solving are in hundreds if not thousands as well as security software are also in hundreds. Productivity suites are hard to build because of the nature of tasks to be done. For example tools to be used for office environment can be counted on fingertips like Microsoft Office (proprietary), Apache OpenOffice (free open source), LibreOffice (free open source), SoftwareMaker Office (free & proprietary), WPS Office (free & proprietary), and online office suite Google Docs (free). I have written a post about free office suites alternative to Microsoft Office. But right now, with cooperation of Ability Software Int., I have a giveaway of Ability Office Standard v8 [Latest].

Ability Office Standard has three core applications in the package: Write, Presentation and Spreadsheet. There are two more tools in the Ability Office Standard: Photoalbum and Photopaint. Write is alternative to Microsoft Word, Presentation is alternative to Microsoft PowerPoint, and Spreadsheet is alternative to Microsoft Excel. It let you open, modify and save all Microsoft Office files as well as Apache OpenOffice files of the respective apps. For example Ability Write can open, edit and save Microsoft Word files and so on. Thus, it eliminates the need of Microsoft Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

I have been using Ability Office Standard since two weeks and I did not feel at all that I am not using Microsoft Office. There is some difference of costume and polishing majorly, but functions and features are same. Below is an image of Microsoft Word 2019 and Ability Write 2018. Ribbon-bars, in both windows, do not look identical but, in fact, most of the functions are same. In Ability Write you will find the difference of features under Tools ribbon. Yes! Microsoft Office still has more features but, you know, they just want to put everything in one package. Also you pay a lot more for Microsoft Office and you pay for the features you will never use. 


Ability Photoalbum is just a photo viewer. But Ability Photopaint is a great tool for digital photo manipulation. It eliminates the need to buy any extra photo editing tool.

You can download Ability Office Standard as a trail from the following link, test the apps included in the package. You will find it useful unless you have very special needs which can only be fulfilled by Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop. Well, you will pay more then.
